Back to News Listing Server Problems

Posted: Monday, September 16, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Hi guys,

We’re very sorry to report we had a serious hardware failure over the weekend in our data centre in Colorado. 

Due to the failure a database server crashed and the Matrix & Ageod sites were down for 4 hours this morning. That in itself is a major issue for us but in addition to this the hardware failure resulted in a loss of the server snap shot. These snapshots allow the server to recover to an earlier position and usually mean if there is an issue and data is lost then you can recover with minimal effort and loss of data. The loss of the snapshot meant we had to manually revert to an earlier backup and the most recent uncompromised backup was the 14thSeptember. This means we have lost just over 24 hours of data.

Any forum posts, account changes, new accounts, news items – basically any changes at all made during these last 24 hours have been lost. There is no way to recover them. We are very sorry for any inconvenience and you can be sure that however upset you are about it, we are far more upset. Our web team has been working through the night to recover what they can. We’ll be doing a full review with the data centre in Colorado to find out what happened and why and make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Once again apologies for any frustration.

The Matrix Games Team

    Pandora: Eclipse of Nashira gets release date

    Thursday, August 28, 2014

    Since the release of Pandora: First Contact in late 2013, developers from Proxy Studios have been carefully collecting players’ feedback and thinking about the pros and cons that were highlighted by the community. At the core of this debate were requests about the diversity in this 4X sci-fi game, and the richness of the diplomatic relations between the factions. As a result the team has been working hard to make the game deeper and released several patches and a free expansion – Return of Messari – that went in this direction, and brought brand new content with a game changer that ensured fun and challenge for the late game.

    To End All Wars is now available!

    Tuesday, August 26, 2014

    “This war, like the next war, is a war to end war.” (David Lloyd George – UK Prime Minister)

    One hundred years ago today, Russian and German forces were standing facing each other in East Prussia. This early confrontation on the Eastern Front – known as the Battle of Tannenberg - resulted in the almost complete destruction of the Russian Second Army and the suicide of their main commander, Samsonov. On the German side the battle made Paul von Hindenburg famous for the rest of the war, and proved that moving troops quickly by train could bring a decisive advantage. Technology was an asset that could make all the difference in the years to come…
